    Thumbs up Fob Shooter tries out the Bitzenburger Jig and Fusion Vanes

    I've been using Starrflight Fobs for several years. I love my Fobs for hunting but they are not allowed in some Competitions. I always carry some Harvest Time Archery HT-2 with Factory fletched Blazers When I shoot with other people. Some folks are not Friendly toward us Fob Users. After some time I end up tearing Blazers off the shafts. I usually put them aside until I have time to drive 90 miles one way to the local Archery shop and I pay the shop to refletch them. I love going to the shop but the drive gets kinda old. So I bought the Bitzenburger Dial a Fletch Jig with a Straight Clamp. I also bought some Steel Force Beyond Clean Arrow Cleaner, Steel Force Beyond Bond Glue. The set up was easy. it didn't come with instructions So I went over to their website and downloaded and printed it out. In about 5 minutes I was fletching arrows.

    Here's some Harvest Time Archery HT-2 400's,.001 Spined Shafts with Pink Onestringer Wraps. 3 inch Fusion Vanes 2 Pink, 1 White. I'm letting them dry today and I'll see how they fly tomorrow. I sprained my back again ( Partially Disabled) so i'm down for the count today. I think I'm adding too much Glue. If you have tips for me please post. I'm like a Sponge soaking up the Fletching tips and Info.

    What do you think?. I love Pink For my hunting arrows. I normally use Pink Fobs for Hunting. They are so easy to see and recover after the pass through.

    Default Good Looking Arrows Excellent job....

    In following the valley of the quill just enough glue to create a line of glue down the valley, less is more, and then once the fletch is complete just a dot at the front of the vane and a dot behind. Some glues are about 15 second set, others about 30. I find the fletching process a really zen time. Similar to I guess what a fly fisherman feels tying flies.

    Thanks all for the kind words. I'm laying on the couch medicated (legally) with the laptop on my chest. lol. Darn Muscle Spasms!. I need better lighting. It's hard to see the clear groove of the fusion vane. I did do the dot in front and back of the fletching.
